McNally Robinson Community Classroom: Winnipeg, Water, and Colonialism

 

Led by University of Manitoba history professor Adele Perry, this course will explore the history of Winnipeg and water, with a particular attention paid to how colonialism has shaped and continues to shape this city’s relationship to the water we drink and the water that flows through the city’s rivers.  Over the course of three classes, we will discuss Indigenous and settler histories of water, the history of municipal water supply, and the current politics of Winnipeg’s relationship to water, including its relationship to Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, the Annishnaabeg community located at what has, since 1913, been the source of the city’s water supply.
